Hey everyone. I am looking for some tips on choosing a counselor. I have gone to 2 different ones withng the past few years, but didnt find much help. I think I need one who specializes in co-dependency & similar issues. The past times I saw a counselor, I think I was focusing too much on changing my relationships, and venting about how bad they were, which I think were the wrong reasons. Does anyone know a good website or some type of input on finding counselors who are specific, to these kinds of problems?

Ryn - Choose someone you feel comfortable with and in harmony with your own values. Someone you feel who is understanding and sympathetic, nonjudgemental, compassionate.

Trust your gut feeling. Take time to see him/her within the 1st few sessions and journal what you thought about them. Were they up to your expectations? What did you like/disliked about them? Do you think you would want to continue with them Or consider seeing someone else?

These type of questions should help you to assess whether you wish to continue or discontinue with that particular counselor.
